I'm 41 years old. I'm a Christian. I'm married and have two children. I teach high school English. I'm overweight.
I've just had blood work done that shows that I'm a healthy person, other than being overweight. I do have a problem with my thyroid and have started taking medicine for it. I'm so thankful that I do have my health. I know that I need to lose the weight, so that it doesn't cause problems.
I want to set a good example for my children who are 15 and 13. I want them to develop healthy lifestyles.
I tried this about a year ago and didn't stick with it. I'm hoping that I will find the will power to lose the weight.
I need help!

My Goals:
I was 40 on Nov. 18, 2011. It's not the end of the world. I set a goal of losing 55 pounds by my birthday; it didn't happen.
My new goal is to lose those 50 pounds this year!
I've joined a new SparkTeam, The POWER of TEN. The idea is to set the goal of losing 10 pounds- focus on that, achieve it, then set another goal of 10 pounds. So my 1st goal is to lose 10 pounds by 11-18-11. I can do it!

My Program:
I've started walking at home using the DVDs from Leslie Sansone. I really like them because they are doable! I've got the DVDs from The Biggest Loser, but some of the moves- pushups and lunges- are too hard for me right now. I don't have a food plan that I'm following- need to work on that.

Other Information:
I would love to have Buddies who will help hold me accountable!

  • v BUGLET-
    Welcome to this incredible weight loss site. You’ll find lots of tools here to help you lose the weight you want to lose. I started in Jan. 07 and lost 60 lbs that year. I have managed to maintain except for 10lbs I gained while sick. You’ll find lots of motivation here by choosing your teams carefully. The team that helped me most is “The Alternate-Day-Diet, Friends of Dr Johnson” Drop by and check us out.

    This plan will eliminate your allergies as many on this team can testify to.
